Question about Kenmore 84052 Dryer

1 Answer

My Kenmore drier won't stop now! Perhaps timer isn't working?

Last weekend I posed the following question and got excellent advice:
My 2006 Kenmore electric dryer stopped running. We checked the plug and the breakers and don't see the problem. The codes on it are DWJR-ELE-2406028-FM54; 110.66652500. We can't find the owners manual. Any advice is appreciated! WE bought a new thermal sensor and now the dryer works, except it doesn't turn off when on the timed dry cycle. So the timer does count down from 40 min to 30 min etc down to 0 but then it just keeps running until we open the door. Can you provide a troubleshooting suggestion? Thanks in advance

    This looks helpful. What does the relay look like? Where on the back of the drier would I find the relay?

    Thanks.

Hi there. this is a timer issue. it counts down but, the actual shut off dial embedded in the timer mechanism is damaged for some reason. replacing the timer assembly will correct this issue. there are two parts to a timer. One, it times and last, it initiates the shutoff. the second action is not working properly. to be sure, check the relay before you purchase the new timer.


I have also provided you with a complete manual set that you can access and print out if you would like.

if you take the back off of your dryer and look for a little white thermo fuse with 2 wires on it if you unhook the wires and plug them together than start the dryer if it starts shut it off and replace the fuse and clean your venting

Assuming that the fuses you speak of are the external pair, and not the internal motor or timer resets:

Check the fuse holder for corrosion on the plates. Often the fuse is not properly seated because of this build-up and therefore has an intermittent connection. This will cause the fuse to either heat up, or overload; ultimately failing.

To remedy this, turn OFF the breaker, or main switch if necessary, and fix a wooden dowel with a piece of emery cloth (or sand paper) on the end. Remove any visible black corrosion from the contact plates.
Finish with a spray of WD40 to protect the plates and fuse end.
Replace the fuse, ensuring that it's tight, reinstate power and try again.

Yes it is fairly easy to replace from the back. First verify it is the element and not the thermal fuse or a loss of one leg of the 240VAC circuit.

Make sure that the problem is not a broken belt, or a belt that has slipped off of the motor pulley or idle arm pulley.
Look to see if the motor is running first, sometimes you cannot hear the motor running but it is.
Also you can check your breakers to see if one is kicked out.
This problem can also be caused by a faulty start switch.
If this is not the problem than it may be time to call the repairman

Won't heat


There could be a number of different reasons for your drier not to be heating. You could start off with making sure your getting 240v to your drier. Then you could check the lint trap outside your house to make sure its not clogged. If all is good you will now have to take apart the drier and with a ohm meter check several parts. Heating element, burnt wire, limit switches, and a few others depending on the model. If your familiar with troubleshooting you can find a schematic on your drier and go from there. If not I would recommend you having a technician to come and check it.

I've changed the belt on my indesit is60v but now it will not start could it be a loose wire? my test pen says power is going from the start button to the timer


Just because power is getting to the switch doesn't necessarily mean the switch isn't bad. It is also possible that the motor or timer is defective.

My dryer has not been shutting off by itself. Last night the dryer ran all night. It should have stopped after 20m minutes. The clothes were very very warm. I'm concerned this could have started a fire....


Either the timer is faulty or the moisture sensor has failed. Do not use until you have had it checked.
What make/model is it? Hard to give advice without the info!

Kenmore 70 Series Dryer not heating and not cutting off


I had an identical problem to yours this weekend with my Kenmore dryer. There were 2 problems.

1. Timer was broken. Does not advance to "OFF" position on timed dry, however it still works for auto-dry.

2. Thermal fuse was blown. Upon replacing, dryer heated up normally.

I believe when the timer broke, the dryer had kept running and blew the thermal fuse. On Sears' website, thermal fuse is $5.30, timer is roughly $80.

Drier button does not work when push it to start machine


You need to check the dryer door switch. I may be bad. If the timer is clicking it is probably working fine. Also you need to check that the dryer is getting power to the unit. Check your breakers and also pull the unit out and look at the dryer cord. Check the terminals for a short or burnt looking one. Once you have established you have power going to the unit, you can find where the comunication stops within it.

Kenmore drier model 110.96591440 will not cut off in either drying cycle


DO YOU MEAN IT WON'T SHUT OFF? DOES THE TIMER ADVANCE? IF IT STAYS IN THE SAME PLACE, AND YOU ARE ON AN "AUTO DRY" CYCLE, THE TIMER WON'T ADVANCE IF THERE IS A RESTRICTION IN THE EXHAUST.
DISCONNECT THE DRYER EXHAUST FROM THE BACK OF THE DRYER AND TRY ONE LOAD OF LAUNDRY. IF IT WORKS O.K., THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH YOUR DRYER DUCT WORK. HAVE IT CLEANED OUT AND TRY IT AGAIN.

Kenmore Dryer Timer does not advance


Timer resistance is way too low. You may have misswired the new timer. Basically, when the dryer motor is running, the timer motor gets voltage 115 volts.
